The 13th and final episode of the Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom) television anime ended with an announcement on Sunday that its second part will air in January 2022. The official website revealed a teaser visual (pictured), teaser promo, and new theme song artists.
The opening theme, "REAL-EYES," will be performed by lead voice actress Inori Minase (Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka). Carla Vargas' voice actress, Aimi (BanG Dream!), is performing the ending theme "LIGHTS."
The anime series, produced by J.C.Staff, premiered on July 4. Funimation streamed the anime with subtitles and English dub as it aired in Japan.
Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki adapts Dozeumaru's administrative fantasy novel, which they launched on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in 2015 before switching to Pixiv the following year. Overlap began publishing the novel with illustrations by Fuyuki in May 2016. The 15th volume shipped on June 25. The light novel, including digital copies, has cumulatively sold over 1.5 million copies.
After the death of his grandfather, 19-year-old Kazuya Souma—an aspiring civil servant—is left all alone with no one to call family. Out of the blue, he is transported to the Elfrieden Kingdom, a small ailing country in another world, to be a "hero." An ongoing war with the demon army has put the entire world in peril, and Kazuya was summoned to aid in the conflict as an offering from Elfrieden to its allies.
Dissatisfied with being used as tribute, Kazuya decides to help the kingdom revamp its declining economy—not by way of adventuring or war, but through administrative reform. Abruptly declared the King of Elfrieden and betrothed to the princess, the "Realist Hero" Kazuya sets out to assemble a group of talented citizens who will assist him in his bureaucratic battles to get the kingdom back on its feet.
